Murrine B. Suttles, 85, St. Marys, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015, at the Community Hospital in St. Marys.

Mrs. Suttles, the daughter of Murry Ernest and Lillian Everine Carls Rice, was born June 10, 1930, in St. Clere; she was raised and lived in the St. Clere commu­nity many years until moving to St. Marys.

On July 2, 1949, she was united in marriage to Frankie M. Suttles at her parents’ home. He preceded her in death on Dec. 9, 1997. She was also preceded in death by an infant son, Sidney LeRoy; a son, Frankie Eugene “Gene” Suttles, on Sept. 6, 2004; and her sister, Florence Bot­tom.

Murrine lived most of her life farming, where she developed a love for the outdoors and became passionate about gardening. She planted, harvested and prepared produce from her garden each year and would unselfishly give canned and cooked foods as gifts to her family and friends to enjoy. Mur­rine loved her family and God with deep devotion and kept her faith strong as a member of the Rossville Bible Church.
